Obama to Announce NSA Reforms Next Week

Official White House Photo by Pete Souza(WASHINGTON) -- After six damaging months of intelligence revelations, President Obama next Friday will announce the kinds of reforms and restraints he wants on the broad surveillance by the NSA – reforms he thinks will preserve needed surveillance, but curb excesses.

Officials won’t give details, but suggest the restrictions will be based on task force recommendations for new controls, limits, and some safeguards for the privacy rights of Americans caught up in the surveillance which will be allowed to continue.

Foreign leaders will be listening to assurances that eavesdropping on them will be curtailed.
